The Cannabis Patients Association of Canada (CPAC) is a member-driven organization dedicated to being your voice at the table with  governments right across Canada.

Canada’s new government, under the leadership of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the Liberal Party of Canada pledged to legalize, regulate and restrict access to marijuana in their election platform. Part of this process involves removing marijuana consumption and incidental possession from the Criminal Code. These changes however will only come through extensive consultation with all levels of government, experts from various sectors in a collaborative effort to design a new system to restrict the sale and distribution of marijuana.
